Understanding what lean manufacturing is does not take rocket science, nor does it take a conference of ten experts to bear down to the basic concepts. Simply put, lean manufacturing is the achievement of the greatest efficiency and profitability for a company by eliminating the wasteful methods and activities that are commonly present in corporate regimes. At first glance, some firms are intimated with the thought of adopting lean manufacturing because of its fancy sounding name. But, if truth be told, it is actually easier than seems. What you just need to have is the dedication and the discipline to see things through and make change happen.

5S-operation model is one tool of the Lean-philosophy. It stands for improving the order and cleanliness, and creating comfort and a safe working environment. The aim is to increase the productivity of labour. At the same time all the non-value adding actions, such as the time used for searching, should be cut out. It is just one of the many tools which the Lean-ideology includes. 5S consists of five (5) different phases and it was also created in Japan. The names of the phases come from Japanese and all of them begin with the letter s. That is where the name 5S stems from. The phases are:SORT - SEIRISET IN ORDER - SEITONSHINE - SEISOSTANDARDIZE - SEIKETSUSUSTAIN (Some time Sustained Discipline) - SHITSUKEIt is possible to start a 5S program in just one department or area. This allows management to fine-tune the approach and adapt it to the specific workplace. Running a pilot project also permits a group of employees to learn what to do and how to do it. For example, suppose a factory has a centralized team for equipment maintenance, but separate workers for various processes. The maintenance team will be involved everywhere. They might be overwhelmed by an initial factory-wide project, but do well in one area at a time. Also, once they learn from the pilot project, they will bring their new expertise to each new area.Cleanliness and order characterize significant issues both for customers and potential labour force. The starting point is that profitable and high quality tasks can be conducted only in a clean environment. The basic idea is to increase productivity, to improve the level of quality and to raise work ethic. These factors are reached when the working environment is clean and in good order. 5S is a practical tool for maintaining these. It helps to find and eliminate problems in time. The 5S-model is special because it can be applied in to an office as well as in the production of a company. Systematic and disciplined operations are developed also with the 5S-model. The 5S-system has several vital targets. The work station is an important area in the employees' daily life. It should be clean, in good order and safe. In addition to these, 5S gives the company tools to make it an efficient and comfortable place to work. There the staff members must feel easy to simplify the ongoing progresses. The operation model should cause fewer accidents, rejection discards, waste running, stoppages and mistakes. Instead it creates comfort to the environment, better productivity and a good impression to the customers.

A powerful and effective Lean tool, 5S can help prevent company failure and launch an organization into world-class operational excellence. Until now, however, there has been a need for a book with detailed step-by-step guidelines on how to properly implement 5S (Sort, Set in Order, Scrub, Standardize, Sustain) and the visual workplace. Complete with color images, The 5S Playbook: A Step-by-Step Guideline for the Lean Practitioner fills this need. This new book in The LEAN Playbook Series is your guide to proper 5S and visual workplace implementation. It is ideal for Lean practitioners and facilitators looking for a training tool and a guideline that can be used in the work area while improvements are being made. Like a football coach, you can use this playbook for quick reference to convey what’s needed to facilitate effective 5S kaizen events. If for some reason you forget a "play" during the 5S implementation, you can easily reference the playbook. You can follow page by page and use the playbook to facilitate a 5S implementation, or you can go directly to certain topics and use it to help you implement that particular "play." The playbook includes color images from actual 5S implementations. In addition to the images, a combination of short paragraphs and bulleted descriptions walk you through each step of an effective 5S implementation. Looking for supplemental information or Lean coaching from Chris Ortiz? Go to to receive ongoing support and advice on how to use The LEAN Playbook Series for training and implementation.

This book explains the implementation of just in time (JIT) production in an industrial context, while also highlighting the application of various, vital lean production tools. Shifting the trade-off between productivity and quality, the book discusses the preparation stages needed before implementing a JIT system. After an introduction to lean manufacturing and JIT, it introduces readers to the fundamentals and practice of Kaizen, paying special attention to lean manufacturing tools. The book demonstrates how to use the 5S approach (with the stages of Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu and Shitsuke), Standardized Work, Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) and the Kanban system. In brief, the book provides an understanding of the processes associated with the application of these tools and highlights the benefits attained by companies that have implemented JIT systems. Throughout the book, a real-world case study is used to deepen readers’ understanding of how lean manufacturing tools can be implemented. The book is ideally suited for executive courses in industrial engineering and management, but can also be used for upper undergraduate and graduate courses at universities.

When was the last time you saw your desktop? If your answer is, "Hmm...I don't really remember," do you realize how much time and energy you are wasting just looking for stuff? I am guessing that you already know you are wasting time. Or maybe you are so embarrassed by your messy office that you don't even let clients see it. You end up meeting with clients in a conference room. You did like to get your office cleaned up, but you have no idea where to start. Let me suggest a concept called: 5S. 5S is an organizational tool born out of the Toyota production system called Lean. The basic idea behind 5S office management is that a messy office is full of waste. Not only the waste you can see, i.e. the mess; but the time wasted in looking for the right file, your phone, eye glasses. You get the idea. (Caveat: Lean tools like 5S are designed to work together to create a synergistic whole. Ideally, they should not be implemented individually, but rather as a part of an entire Lean organization. That being said, 5S is something you can implement today, with the understanding that your goal is to create a more effective and efficient office as a whole.)

A friend of mine asked a great question in response to one of my recent Lean books. His question was in essence how do you keep Lean initiatives moving ahead and not going the way of another flavour of the month program. We have all seen managers with the best intentions launch new initiatives that were supposed to be the wave of the future only to see them fizzle out after a few weeks or months. Lean initiatives are no different. Many organizations have tried Lean and either abandon it completely or don’t take it very far. So what makes the difference between companies that tried Lean and those that are leading the pack? A successful launch of Lean is in some respects like getting lean with one’s weight. There are no quick fixes. There are no easy solutions and it takes work. You cannot make a New Year’s resolution to lose weight then go back to your old habits after a few weeks or months and expect to stay Lean. It takes discipline over the long haul.

Do you want to be the slave of your working environment, or its master? Do you want your working area to help you to do your job, or to hinder your efforts? Do you want to be rushing to complete your tasks, or have time to take pride in them? 5S is a Workplace Organisation system that enables you to be the master of your work area, a work area that helps you to do your job instead of hindering you, so that you have time to take pride in your efforts. It is there to enable you to get each activity right the first time, every time. Don’t get caught up in the message that 5S is a discipline of managers over workers. If you have been taught that, then the teacher didn’t know what they were talking about. 5S involves everyone, from directors to the guy who sweeps the floor. It benefits everyone. It depends on everyone. For the system to work, no-one can hide. Everyone has to be involved, everyone has to contribute.

One of the most common practices carried in modern manufacturing facilities is the implementation of 5S philosophy. 5S, Japanese improvement ideology, is a lean manufacturing tool directed at improving the overall efficiency and consistency. This particular project study was carried by the author during his internship with XYZ company. The study was based on a moving assembly line. Due to increase in volume of cabs in recent year, the work stations were not fully organized as desired, resulting in loss of productivity, time, and quality to some extent. This research study was aimed at improving the assembly line flow by using effective and efficient lean manufacturing tools (5S in particular), thereby resulting in increased productivity, run time, quality, and adapting to the 5S culture as a means for continuous process improvement. The paper covers the results and documents them in form of pictures, accesses the results, and also suggest necessary recommendations based on the findings for a continuous improvement cycle.

Lean Six Sigma is a synergised managerial concept of Lean and Six Sigma that results in the elimination of the seven kinds of wastes/muda (classified as Defects, Overproduction, Transportation, Waiting, Inventory, Motion and over Processing) and provision of goods and service at a rate of 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO). Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization ("Black Belts", "Green Belts", etc.) who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets (cost reduction and/or profit increase).
